maybe illuvatar was a sinister god that knew very well what was going to happen in middle earth. he was the creator of all, so it would be reasonably acceptable to assume that he knew the role all beings would play in the shaping of middle earth before their conception. all that happened in m.e. could have just been entertainment to the lord of arda. he allowed melkor to oppose the music of the ainur, and he must have known(being omnipotent as most gods are) that by permitting melkor to decend to arda and play a significant role in the shaping of m.e. that there would be conflict in the actual creation process. maybe arda was just a tv show that illuvatar enjoyed watching.
